The weekend of August 2, 1918 was one of the most violent in Toronto’s history. As many as 50,000 people took to city streets over three days, rioting and destroying businesses owned by Greek immigrants. Learn what happened and why these riots are largely forgotten. Visit the locations where history was made!
